In a world with thousands of people who do what you do, you need so much more than a headshot to stand out. Coming from a 15 year background in corporate marketing, I know exactly what you need to market well. I'm a wardrobe stylist, marketing consultant, & photographer all rolled into one!
Your audience needs to see authentic you on a regular basis in order to connect. I will dive deep into learning who you are in order to capture that on camera, ensuring that your story is always fresh on everyone’s mind.
Stop showing up with cell phone selfies. Instead, make an investment in your business & show up in the marketplace with professional, magazine-quality imagery. Transform your brand from bland to beautiful!
Having a photographer at your disposal isn't just for celebrities, it's for anyone who wants their brand to be known intimately. I only work with 12 personal brands per year due to the amount of time involved in telling each brand's story.
No two businesses are alike, so first we'll hop on a quick, 30 minute Skype call to chat about what you need & where in the world you want to shoot. This will also be a great opportunity to see if our personalities mesh; I only work with 12 personal branding clients per year due to the high-touch nature of these projects.
After you're officially booked, you'll receive a branding workbook & detailed questionnaire so I can learn more about your brand. Once that's complete, you'll receive a custom-designed branding board & we'll jump on another quick call to finalize your new brand's look. If you've had your branding done already, we'll skip a lot of this & just do the quick call to figure out how to incorporate your brand into your new images.
While I'm based in Dallas, we can shoot anywhere in the world. If you're a yogi dreaming of doing lifestyle type images on the beaches of Cali, a life coach who wants to show the freedom she has to work from anywhere in the world - whatever your needs, I can make it happen. Sessions outside of Dallas MAY incur travel fees, but there are ways to avoid these; contact me for more info.
For Dallas sessions, one of my amazing licensed hair/makeup artists will be on set the entire day of your shoot for changes unless you prefer to do your own. For sessions outside of Dallas, there may be additional costs as it will depend on the local artist's fees.
The day of your shoot, we'll work on an "about me" video for your website. I'll not only take still photos, but also film some footage of you working in various scenes. Then, I'll record you speaking for a minute to use as a voiceover. This services isn't extra but INCLUDED in all my personal branding packages!!
2 weeks after your shoot you'll receive a link to download all of your beautiful new images in both high-resolution for printing & low-resolution for social media use along with a commercial usage license. You'll also receive your complimentary custom-designed Canva templates along with a video tutorial on how to modify them & your "about me" video...get ready to SHINE!!
Candace is incredible. She was able to pull off exactly what I wanted and needed for my branding. She was there throughout the whole process, from picking out the right outfits, finding the perfect location, to posing. She made sure my photos really represented my brand. I am not an easy person to photograph as I'm picky. But she was very helpful & patient to get the exact photos I wanted. I'm confident that these pictures are going to help boost my business because they make all of my marketing look more polished and really represent what I do. I'm thrilled with how my pictures came out!
Candace has such a sweet, exuberant personality and she makes you feel comfortable posing for personal branding photos. This was my first experience doing a photo shoot, & it was AMAZING. I was super nervous about the whole thing beforehand, but she walked me through every step, and every detail was fabulous. She puts so much work and passion into what she does and it ultimately shows in every photo. Totally loved the outcome of mine. My friends and family couldn't stop complimenting her work either when they saw my pics. I want to someday give the gift of doing a photo shoot with Candace to someone I love. It was a special moment for me and I know it'll be for them. Totally recommend!
Candace is an AMAZING photographer...gifted, knowledgeable, creative, and FUN!! Thank you so much for the beautiful personal branding photos. I absolutely love them and look forward to working with you again!
Excellent service, very professional, and wonderful experience. Wouldn't change it for anything. Thank you Candace, we love you & you are the BEST!

As an entrepreneur, you have many stories to tell about the woman behind your brand. One might be that you work from home, in which case we will take photos of you at your computer. Another might be that you love to bake cookies with the kids in your downtime, so we'll get photos of that too. Whatever YOUR story is, I'm here to capture it in a way that shows the woman behind your brand authentically. For a more extensive list of story ideas, click here. I'm constantly adding to this list, but of course will shoot whatever is important to YOUR brand
Personal branding photography is a little different than traditional portrait photography. Legally, in order to use your images in marketing materials, you need a commercial license. However, as we retain the copyright, the commercial license does NOT allow you to sell your images as stock photography or in any other way. Also, just incase you're wondering, commercial use means your images will NOT have annoying watermarks on them & you do NOT have to credit me when you use them, though shout-outs are always appreciated, & returned.
YES! I LOVE to travel & usually plan a trip to at least one city outside of Dallas per year to photograph new clients. Current destination shoot goals include LA, Vegas, Ireland, & Greece. I'm also willing to come to you anywhere in the US at no additional cost if you + at least 2 friends book any type of session. Or, I'll go anywhere in the world just for you if you cover my flight & hotel. Contact me for more info!
I remember my first photoshoot; the photographer just told me, "Go stand over there," then never gave any direction after that. I felt really awkward & as a result, there were only 1 out of 100+ photos that I liked. This is NOT how I work. I direct you all the way down to your fingertips. Even if you've never done something like this before, you don't need to worry with a modeling coach (I used to model) by your side! Additionally, you won't have to wait until your viewing to see how beautiful you are as I will show you the back of my camera during the shoot. A lot of photographers don't want you to see un-retouched photos, but I believe that showing them during the shoot helps women become more comfortable in their own skin based on my own experiences in front of the camera. Gradually, as I show you great picture after great picture, your confidence will increase which will lead to the dreamy photos you've always wanted.
I'm hoping you'll book my team & I for the full experience. However, I understand that you might have reasons for doing your own hair & makeup. While there are no discounts for doing so, you're welcome to it, just let me know when you book that you won't be using my artist so I can be sure not to schedule her.
